    Abstract

    Approximately 75 papers on the glass electrode were abstracted by Chemical Abstracts during the war years, 1941 to 1945, the number falling off with time, until papers listed for 1945 reached the low figure of only 9. Undoubtedly 1946 will also show an abnormally small number of papers published on the glass electrode, because scientists, graduate students, and research workers now beginning new investigations will not have data ready for publication in time to be abstracted by the 1946 Chemical Abstracts. The only other electrode system which is much used, the quinhydrone, was not studied as extensively as the glass electrode, as indicated by the fact that only 19 quinhydrone papers were listed during the five years of war (see Fig. 1). Apparently there is considerably more interest in the glass electrode; hence this paper is limited to discussion of it.
